Thank You Prayers and Poems
We wrote thank you poems/prayers to the Cork City Fire Brigade to let them know that we were thinking of them and all the other rescue services during the big car park fire in Douglas on September 1st. They wrote back to us and were very pleased and impressed to hear form us.
Art : Hedgehogs
September is a time for hedgehogs and we sketched, coloured, painted etc. our own hedgehogs for our Art class.
Japan Jigsaw Puzzle
Japan is hosting the Rugby World Cup 2019 and we learnt a lot about Japan and made it into a jigsaw puzzle project.
Project on Brazil
Our new SNA is from Brazil and we looked at her country: where it is situated, the people, the food, school life, the language etc. We looked at the Amazon River and all animal life around it.
Art : Lucky Koi Fish
These fish are a symbol of good fortune or luck in Japan. It is a valued pet. We used a mixture of salt, paint and glue to achieve this unique effect.
Cherry Blossom Fish
We sponge painted the background leaving a white circle for the sun. Then we used a straw to blow paint the tree branches. After that we used cotton buds to form rings of circles for the petals. To finish we used a toothpick to drag the centre white paint out between the pink petals. The effect was very stunning.
World Cup Project
We have completed a massive Rugby World Cup project, consisting of two extremely large posters, each showing two pools of teams and all the games they played. It was a great way to learn where the countries were, to draw their flags and to learn the vocabulary of the rugby game.
The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be the 9th Rugby World Cup and it will be held in Japan between the 20th September and the 2nd November. This is the first time the tournament is being held in Asia. Only four countries have won the World Cup, New Zealand three times, Australia and South Africa twice and England once.
We designed our own rugby balls for Art and put them on a poster.
The Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross facilitated a sewing workshop run by those with banner making expertise. All the material, felt, needles, thread was supplied and two representatives from each school and church spent a pleasant afternoon sewing our banners, some taking them home to finish them. This is what our school banner looks like.
Annual Children’s Service
Our annual Children’s service was in St. Peters Church on 26th September. The church was full of pupils, school staff and clergy from all the parishes in the Cork Cloyne and Ross Diocese.
